Mitchell Fishing for Work?
by

Funny how former Sen. George Mitchell is now heading Major League Baseball’s belated steroids investigation. He must not have been encouraged by the results of this trolling for work with other athletic endeavors.

We hear Mitchell was one of the first in line to beg outgoing National Football League commissioner Paul Tagliabue for an opportunity to fill his very large shoes. After all Mitchell thinks he brokered peace in Northern Ireland, he figures he can broker anything. But Mitchell’s star is somewhat tarnished by his role as a board member at the Walt Disney Company, which was detailed in joyously brutal detail by Jim Stewart in his “Disney Wars” book.

Given Mitchell’s desire for the spotlight, it’s doubtful Tagliabue would be looking to him as a reasonable replacement, and the 32 egos in NFL ownership wouldn’t like him much, either.
